Caring for a loved one with a cognitive disorder or another disabling condition forever changes the lives of families and caregivers. There can be devastating effects on those providing long-term care: financial pressures, legal quandaries, health problems, emotional turmoil.
Fortunately, in California, there is help. Eleven nonprofit Caregiver Resource Centers (CRCs) throughout the state each year serve more than 14,000 families and caregivers of adults affected by chronic health conditions. These debilitating disorders including Alzheimer's, multi-infarct disease or other dementias; cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke or aneurysms; degenerative diseases which cause both physical and cognitive impairment such as Parkinson's, Huntington's, multiple sclerosis, brain injury due to trauma or infection; brain tumor; and other conditions.
